  • Mrs Hayton

    “The house, gardens and location are absolutely gorgeous and we loved our stay.”

    The only (minor) niggle is that the WiFi is not strong enough to work upstairs.

The property

A unique Grade II listed circa 1400 Medieval Hall surrounded by an acre of gardens in the village of Bignor, West Sussex.

Still retaining its original features including vaulted ceilings and fine timberwork, The Yeoman’s House is a unique characterful retreat for a family or group of friends.

Step inside into the hallway, and you will find a downstairs toilet and cloakroom area.

Beyond this, a light dining room with garden views with additional easy seating.

This leads to the spacious sitting room featuring an imposing feature inglenook fireplace and traditional exposed timberwork.

Sit back in the comfortable sofas and enjoy a relaxing evening in after an action-packed day.

Beyond the sitting room is a small study, perfect for quiet reading or home working.

Contrasting with the age of the house, the streamlined and contemporary kitchen with stainless steel units provides everything needed for the group to prepare hearty meals which everyone can enjoy in the dining area.

An oak staircase takes you upstairs to the vaulted bedrooms, the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and striking original chimney breast, a twin room, and a further twin bedroom with a mezzanine TV area.

A family shower room completes the accommodation. Outside, The Yeoman’s House is surrounded by an extensive lawned garden bordered by mature hedging.

There is a flagstone terrace where you can sip a refreshing drink as the sun goes down.

In addition, there is a separate orchard for you to explore and a swing. The owners have a small two storey cottage within the grounds, located behind a tall Yew Hedge in its own very separate garden.

The owners may be in residence on occasion but are out of sight and will be discreet. The small village of Bignor is known for its preserved Roman Villa and wonderful walks up Bignor Hill.

The historic town of Arundel, is a ten minute drive, home to the ancient 12th century Arundel Castle and many independent shops, art galleries and restaurants.

Alternatively visit the market town of Petworth, known for its antique shops and Petworth House (National Trust).

A fascinating base for the whole family to enjoy.

About the location


Worthing 8 miles; Goodwood 8 miles; Chichester 10 miles.

Arundel sits just outside the South Downs National Park and with the River Arun winding through the town makes for a popular tourist destination when visiting Sussex. Combining one thousand years of history with independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots and great attractions, Arundel has a thriving events calendar. With leisure pursuits from walking across the South Downs to canoeing, boating or cycling, there is something for everyone when you visit Arundel. The town's long and varied history dates back to 1086 when it was mentioned in the Domesday Book and during the 14th century it became the seat for the Dukes of Norfolk. Arundel Castle is one of the longest inhabited country houses in England and is open to the public from April to October. Arundel Cathedral stands majestically over the town and is open every day. This beautiful building is well worth a visit but be ready for the steep climb up the hill and along cobbled streets. So much to see and do no matter what the weather or time of the year, Arundel is the perfect choice, now all you have to decide is "how long can I stay?"
